Individual Counseling: Treating Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma with EMDR
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) has proven to be the most effective and healing modality for anxiety, trauma, or stress. In the last 20 years empirical research, as well as client self-reporting, has repeatedly shown successful outcomes in terminating symptoms of anxiety, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder. The process allows you to connect your emotions to how you interpret life experiences. EMDR gives you a new framework that offers more constructive and healing tools to deal with stress and worry, or symptoms of obsessive thoughts, insomnia from worry, lack of focus, hypervigilance, and generalized anxiety.
